Lotte is a psychologist at OpenUp. She employs a holistic view of recovery, seeing mental, emotional and physical health as one independent system. Together, she will help you figure out how to move forward using your own resilience and autonomy.
As humans we are inclined to ruminate with our thoughts, endlessly analyzing, Lotte will stimulate you to get back in contact with what you feel so that you can take choices from there. Balance between capacity and load, effort and relaxation and head and heart, is central to her approach.
Your body often is the first to recognize how you are doing. A tool to connect more with your body and better listen to your needs is the Mood Meter. She herself uses this to connect with her body again, instead of staying in her head.
Lotte obtained two Master’s degrees from the University of Amsterdam. She graduated in clinical psychology and training & development. In addition to her work as a psychologist, she also teaches at universities. She has experience in addiction treatment and sexology.
Lotte speaks Dutch, English, and Spanish.
